How's that obsolete? We still have full service stations.
I haven't seen a gas station attendant pump anyone's gas in at least 25 yrs. They still do that?

Here in NJ that's all we have! No self-service.

Yup, at least here they do.

I would like to say it just once.

I guess I will have to plan a road trip!

I know in Oregon, you CANNOT fill your own tank. It's against the law. Or used to be last time I drove through it (probably 5 years ago, but I can't imagine it changing...it's been that way my entire life).

Here, "regular" used to be leaded gas. So "regular or unleaded" had a totally different meaning that decaf or caffeinated coffee.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

We have one full service station here. They were all full service until one high school aged attendant was killed (in the 80's) when the gas pumps exploded. Every gas station switched to self service then, but one went back to full a few years ago. It is out of my way so I never get to enjoy it.

On that note: Check your oil/wash your windows?

NJ is the same way. Illegal to pump your own gas.

Most of the time, I'd rather pump my own because it is faster. But in the dead of winter, I miss being able to huddle up in my warm car while someone else pumps it.

my friend has a cup that says "jersey girls don't pump gas"

i've been to new jersey...and I remember pumping gas. It was somewhere in newark...maybe it's too real in the streets there.

I'm pretty sure I did just outside of Atlantic City, too. We thought it was so weird to have to go pay for your gas before your could pump it!

to make a telephone call or connection I feel comfortable saying dialing every time I make a call. Esp. since unless I'm on my cell (and many times if I am) I still have to punch the numbers in. I also have to hang the phone up or it gets the angry busy tone. Sure cell's are often used for personal use or on the go business, but offices and such still have actual phones that require it to be "hung" up.

I also don't see how flipping through the channels is obsolete. As long as someone scans through them and has a remote it applies. Sure we may use the guide, or not have a TV at all (netflix, hulu etc) but at some point boredom sets in and you just flip through to see what catches your interest. Flipping through the channels.
In the terms of getting up and manually flipping or turning the dial on the television, it is obsolete. You know, back in the days when kids were the remote. I do not miss that. I no longer say flipping through the channels. I typically say I am channel surfing, or looking at the guide, but I still say "film at 11" for fun.


Another one (that I personally loved): I made you a mixed tape.

I never hear "charge it to my account" anymore. That was common when I was a child. We only have one grocery store left that will allow life long customers to pay a little later, do deliveries, or shop for you and bring your items to the car. That is due to large chain stores, lack of trust, and technology.

Omg! Like the Andy Griffith Show!

"White it out" (referring to using White Out - brand name for a little bottle of white stuff that you painted over typing mistakes).

I don't ever remember pumping your own gas being legal in NJ. I'm 43 and have never pumped my own gas - I don't even know how.

How about 'get off the phone, I'm waiting for a call' or 'I'll call you from my car phone'.

must be only true jersey people who don't have to pump gas, every non-jersey person has to.

I'm not saying you're a liar, because I know people from jersey who don't pump gas, I'm just saying I've pumped gas in NJ.
WHO GONNA STOP ME??...the cops

eta:

ummm so if it's 2 am can you pump your own gas or no? Or do gas stations stay open 24/7.

Because my hometown we can go to certain gas stations at 3 am and pump gas without anyone working there....if you know you have a credit card, obviously.

And everywhere here is Prepay anyway. I haven't seen non Prepay gas stations in foreverrr.

You're out of luck if it's 2 am and the gas station isn't open. There are some that are open 24 hours, but most aren't.

If you've pumped gas in Jersey, you weren't supposed to, it is actually illegal. I don't have any idea what the penalty is, but I guess everyone here just knows there's no need to get out of your car, the attendant will be with you in a minute.

I'm a rebel I guess.

I had to google it and saw it was illegal. It's also one of the dumbest laws on the dumb law list.

I guess it gives jobs, so that's good...
